Cross-posted in Knives On The Big Screen.  Started watching Dexter over again and look what Dexter used for his first kill.  A Buck 119 with a Cocobola handle.  Good taste!!!

We both learned something didn't we Jan? Still, I have a very early version Buck, so not a total loss.

I also agree about the Rancher, I like it more than the Stockman, which is the same size. It's nice having the awl available if needed. Next to my Buck Congress the Rancher is one of my favorites for EDC.

I was the other person viewing the knife!  Syd is correct, if the pics are not clear or precise ask for more.

In looking at the earlier post though Syd, that Rancher is one sweet knife!!

Ok, here is a lesson on how NOT to buy vintage knives online. Pictured below are two Buck #303 Cadets. On top is a Camillus-made from the mid to late 70's, (it has a carbon spring which dates it pre 1980), below is the same model, but made by Schrade between 1967-1972. Notice any difference? The earlier knife is noticeably of thinner profile, has brass handle pins, and though it's reshaped, the master blade has a small angle on top from the nail nick back, (a Schrade "tell"), it's hard to see but it's there.

I bought that older knife online thinking it was intact, but when it arrived I of course immediately noticed that the master blade had been broken then reshaped, losing nearly an inch of it's original length, (compare the blades in the photo). The seller claimed ignorance of course, but said he would take it back if I wanted to go to the trouble and expense of sending it back. The photos he took weren't clear in his Etsy listing, so I missed that defect when I decided to purchase it, (I wasn't the only one who didn't see that defect BTW). I decided to keep it anyway, at least as an example of the differences between these two versions of the same model knife. The older knife also has no model number on it, and has "Buck" stamped into the pile side of the secondary blades.

Lesson learned? Ask for more photos if the ones you are looking at don't show the knife from every conceivable angle. That's another reason I decided to keep it, I didn't do my homework, so it was partially my fault as well as the seller's.

Oh well, flawed or not this is the oldest Buck that I have, I'll keep it just for that reason if for nothing else.

Still waiting for the 1960's #303 I have coming, but in the meantime I added a #319 Rancher to my Camillus-made 300 series collection; this one probably dates to the 70's. It is the same closed length as a #301 Stockman, (3 7/8"), same frame, but it has an awl instead of a sheepsfoot blade. This one is farm fresh and well used, but in a complete and "good" used condition. Both blades have been sharpened, sloppily of course, but they have no nicks, just scratches and scuffs. Surprisingly both blades are passably sharp. There are also some marks on the bolsters, and the awl actually looks rusty on one side, (probably just gunk). I'd love to have a pristine version of all of my Bucks, but I also respect an often-used knife as well, they have "character", (most of my Bucks fall under that description). I have no problem owning a knife that has been used and appreciated. I'll clean this one up and add it to the herd. More photos after the #303 arrives.

I searched for "pocket knife" and came up with eight pages of results. I had no idea Etsy was getting so popular, thanks again for the heads up. Of course, like any online purchase I won't really know what I got until it arrives sometime next week. The photos didn't show the master blade profile very well, and that will determine its origins, but it is a relatively early Buck, no matter where it was made. I went ahead and bought due to what I think I saw. Whether I got a good deal or not, of course, is yet to be determined. I'll post pics when it arrives, and describe the features that identify it, (again, thanks to 300bucks from AAPK)..

Found more Buck related stuff today at a yard sale for a dollar, an old #133 Buck Honing Kit with both Arkansas & Washita Stone(s) & a partially used can of Buck honing oil, (no box or knives though). Better than that, there was a 1970's mini catalog with prices & photos of all of their knives that came with the kit. Unfortunately right now my printer is broken, so I can't scan it. I'll take it down to the copy store & get it scanned and will post that here soon too. You guys will get a kick out of it, especially the prices, the list for a 110 Folding Hunter is $25, so in my mind that places the catalog in the 70's. Picked up a #303-sized leather sheath at another yard sale today too, so it was a good Buck day at my house.
